DT 1410 Introduction to EU Free Movement law

This is a popular and very practical session designed to ensure that participants are fully conversant with a broad range of European free movement law, the European legislation, the UK implementing regulations and the European case-law as well as decisions of the UK courts. It will cover the latest developments including the CJEU decision in Zambrano and cases at EU and domestic level which have sought to clarify that judgment, and the two sets of amending regulations to the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006 which were introduced in 2012 to give effect to the CJEU judgments in Chen, Ibrahim, and Teixeira, McCarthy, Lassal, Dias, Ziolkowski and Szeja, Rahman and Zambrano.

 

It will also look at the (as yet unresolved) issues raised in the European Commission’s reasoned opinion that was issues to the UK government last year, including comprehensive sickness insurance, and recent case law on exclusion/expulsion.

 

The course has been extended to a full day course to enable fuller discussion of the relevant topics and areas of common difficulty and interest to practitioners.
